The WJA is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year with a year full of events, including a dinner on March 3 entitled “WJA’s 20th Anniversary Salute.” To be held at Doubles at the Sherry Netherland Hotel in Manhattan, it will honor WJA past presidents and original founders and is planned to coincide with the Manufacturers & Jewelers Silversmiths of America Expo in New York. The cost of the event is $95 for WJA members and $110 for nonmembers.
“WJA has a rich history and we intend to celebrate this important anniversary by honoring some of the outstanding women who have provided inspiration and leadership throughout the years,” said WJA’s current president, Anna Martin.
Later this year, at the Awards for Excellence dinner in July, special mention will be made of the organization’s 20th anniversary and its accomplishments over the years.
Other WJA upcoming events include a special breakfast event at the upcoming WJA Show on Jan. 28 where actress and author Agapi Stassinopolous will speak on “Applying Ancient Wisdom to 21st Century Business: Revealing the Divine Power Within You.”
